    Hi gang...thought I would pass this on, just in case any of you are in the neighborhood on March2:

    On the first Saturday in March, San Luis Obispo, California will host
    Loopstock, a festival focusing on music made using real-time sampling and
    looping techniques. Loopstock will bring together "loopers" from all over
    the Western Hemisphere for what promises to be an historic series of
    performances and demonstrations dedicated to looping techniques and

    The types of music that can be expected at Loopstock range from the rich
    ambient soundscapes of Tuba virtuoso Tom Heasley and the refreshingly
    innovative rhythmic pieces of master percussionist Rick Walker, to the
    beautifully melodic bass playing of Max Valentino and the hauntingly surreal
    guitar work of Ted Killian. In all, sixteen performers are scheduled to
    present their unique approaches to looping. Informal workshops will also be
    given, highlighting the technology that makes real-time looping possible.

    Loopstock will be held on Saturday, March 2nd, 2002 at World Drum and Dance
    Studio (formerly Higher Movement Drum and Dance Studio), which is located at
    778 Francis Street, across from Questa Natural Foods Co-op off Broad St. in
    San Luis Obispo. This all-ages event will take place from 2:00 p.m. until
    midnight, and admission is free.
